    Using Altiverb 7 to replicate Teldex Scoring Stage

    Edited: So I noticed that Teldex is one of the spaces included in Altiverb 7. I own MArk1 and have just purchased MArk3 and really love the sound of Teldex. I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with the following kind of setup for a project that has a mix of OT and non-OT instruments...

    Bad Metropolis Ark I spot mic bug + crashing :(

    Just downloaded MAI and started messing around with it. There seems to be a bug on all patches that have spot mics (i.e. any of the horns, the bassoons, choirs, etc). When I start playing the spot mic will turn on and then turn off a couple seconds later ... and then back on ... and so forth. If...

    Orchestral Complete 1.2 iCon pack

    Hey guys! I while ago there was a thread (can't find it!) about the upcoming version of the icons-pack. The author also shared a custom template for OT Inspire, but it was removed from the forum not long after. On the webpage of the new product, there is an image showing the contents: I...

    "Orchestra Guide" on chamber strings - OT First Chairs

    Hey guys! I first found out about Orchestra Guide from this post, some weeks ago. As a total noob in both composing and mockups, I found it really useful. I decided to test it with chamber-sized strings, because I find it hard to make this sound seem realistic. I tried mocking up some bars...

    Puzzle/sidescroller soundtrack

    I'm putting out a downloadable music pack for people to use in their game projects, and this is the final track. After a good many weeks I'm now at the stage just to tweak before putting it out there. I would love to know how it's sounding to you! All synth patches etc. are built variously from...

    Wonder Woman Ideas Suite

    This is musically what I have envisioned for Wonder Woman. Sort of a cross between Ravel and Alex North, though the latter won't seem apparent until I develop this piece further. At this point, this is just a Prelude featuring hints of the larger theme for WW. Used OT Ark I and II, Symphonic...

    Spitfire symphonic brass VS Berlin Brass

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum. Nice to meet you! Recently I'm thinking of getting a new brass library and I'm still in the process of researching, looking into demos etc. I really like both spitfire symphonic brass and orchestral tools Berlin brass and couldn't decide which one to get. Can...

    Bernard Herrmann - Vertigo - Mock-up

    A complete re-recording of Bernard Herrmann's iconic main theme from "Vertigo" (1958), realised with virtual instruments. Spitfire are supposedly releasing a specific Herrmann collaboration, but in the meantime, these sounds work well. What do you think? Sounds used: Strings: Spitfire Audio...

    Berlin Strings Single and Multi Articulation question

    I actually have two questions concerning the capsule system :). Firstly, in the Orchestral Tools Help Desk, it says you can combine Single Articulation patches with Multi Articulation patches using the Mute Instrument keyswitch, but it's unclear as to how this can be accomplished. How exactly...

    OT Berlin Strings - Automation Problems

    Hi guys, I'm using BST 2.1 with Capsule 2.5. Have problems automating certain controls via CC: (a) Legato volume I assign a CC, which does affect the control. Problem is that a value of 0 does not turn the know all the way to the left and a value of 127 does not turn the know all the way to...

    OT Berlin Strings - How to rebow or initiate end of legato line ?

    Hi, I'm using OT BST 2.1 / Capsule 2.5. What is the best way to initiate the end of a legato line and issue a rebow ? Example: I have six 1/8th notes in a bar using Violins 1 legato patch (single articulation). I want to stop the legato transition after the sixth note (and initiate a rebow)...

    Predator OST "Payback time" - Alan Silvestri - Mock up

    Hiya, As a big fan of Alan Silvestri and Predator, I had a pop at mocking up one of the cues from the score with a bunch of libraries. Was a really useful learning tool. It contains great orchestration and a heck of a lot of mileage from small ideas thrown around the orchestra. Harmony is...

    Hey Everyone!! I've just uploaded and published my review for Berlin Brass. At the beginning of this video, I briefly explain some of my performance limitations with this library. Keep in mind, I use a modest system with 32gb of RAM. With that said, I failed to make my point that, due to the...

    Berlin Strings CAPSULE: Populating the Articulation Selector

    I'm at a loss for how to access the many articulations which are claimed for Berlin Strings within a Multi Articulation patch. I'm using CAPSULE 2.5 and have Multi Articulation Violin Longs loaded. The default has TR+1 and TR+2 loaded (HT & WT trills). The documentation (p. 43) claims that I...

    Berlin Strings: What does "SUS Imm" mean?

    I've been puzzling over the articulation nomenclature in OT: Berlin Strings for the Long patches. There are six places in the CAPSULE documentation that start with the abbreviation "SUS Imm" with no further explanation. What could "Imm" mean? Is it German for Immer? Immeditate? I'm at a...

    Orchestra Tools WW - kind of dissapointed ;-(

    Hi I have just bought OT Woodwinds main lib + soloist + exp A. I have worked hard to match their piccolo flute to the VSL version. The OT has a lot of background noise, and it handles transitions from legato to staccato in a manner I haven't heard before. The release of the legato rings over the...

    Advise regarding moving from VSL to Orchestral Tools

    Hi I have been using VSL for quite a long time, struggling to create a proper workflow. I have always found that the number of articulations in VSL libs are challenging in the way that you need so many key switches to take full advantage of the possibilities. I have kind of lost my heart in this...

    Am I imagining things? Didn't there used to be a user forum on the Orchestral Tools site? Now it's only a set of canned Help files, which are not enough: http://www.forum.orchestraltools.com Is there a dedicated space here or on KVR or somewhere else now? Or maybe I'm imagining things...

    Poll: Berlin Strings vs Spitfire (playability and sound)

    There were some comparisons on this forum around when Mural and Berlin Strings were launched. Since then, both have been updated and additional volumes have been released from both companies. I ended up with Mural, and based on my sound preferences (based on demos; I don't have Berlin Strings)...
